What additional foods should Have-nots get?
- Eggplant & escargot, plus frozen eggplant dinners

They're soliciting stabotage ideas again but don't bother submitting any as they'll ignore them and do dumb stuff they wanted to do in the first place

Two hour finale is September 15

Brendon opened Pandora's Box which gave him a night out and let Rachel back for 24 hours.

Matt opened Pandora's Box which held the return of the saboteur (in the form of Ragan) to WREAK HAVOC, and gave him diamond veto for 2 weeks.

Ragan will win $20k if he performs 3 tasks a week for 2 weeks undetected. His identity will be revealed to them at the finale.

Matt holds diamond veto 'which allows him to save himself or anyone else for the next two weeks, and also solely pick who will go up as the replacement nominee.' He can't say he has it until/unless he uses it, and he can't put up Brendon.

I use Stabo/Staboteur/Stabotage because of the typo in an early official CBS BB tweet

Annie & Monet were sequestered until Andrew was evicted. Nobody knows why.

The first saboteur was Annie. She'd have won $50k if she lasted 5 weeks undetected.

Ragan's tattoo says 'Quelquefois un rêve est ce qui vous fait un esclave' ('Sometimes a dream is what makes you a slave')

Have-Nots have their own room again, cold showers again, slop again, plus additional food items decided by viewer votes.

Nobody knows why Paolo isn't there.

The winner of BB12 will win $500k and 2nd place gets $50k. Hamsters earn $750 a week including pre-show hotel and jury sequester.

The habitat has 52 cameras and 95 microphones.

The recorded Big Brother in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.

    This is dingo and these are my words (Wednesday)

    After all the buildup about Ragan's I KNOW YOUR SECRET note last night, there was little to no fallout from it: typical

    In fact I had nothing for today other than another stabo video (the seventh by my count, but he only needs six) - this one sounded like Simon Says, and later Hayden broke one or more pool cues by swinging at the trophy stand, but then Britney had a hammock dump.. it might not look like much here but the sound effects were great.. Flashback to 8/18 10:01pm F3/4 - it's quick

    They had a short lockdown but the backyard was open most of the day & night, yet some of them are still thinking they'll have a double feature tomorrow night.. o hamsters of little brains, no construction project means Q&A in phone booths - definitely not two HOH comps and a veto.. most of them are even aware this is the week that Jeff used his cabat cadoo last year, but few of them are expecting similar tomorrow.. it could be a good night

    Earlier they promised a revival of Just The Tip (again), but it didn't happen (again)

    We got stabotage (Tuesday)

    It took 46 days but we finally got what we were promised and what CBS blew their entire advertising budget on: Ragan tip-toed into the orange room, pulled a note out of his pants, unfolded it, then muttered "I can't do this.. can't do it" and walked out.. on his second attempt he placed the note under Enzo's pillow, mostly - the edges were visible.. it said I KNOW YOUR SECRET - Flashback to 8/17 8:25pm F1/2

    Ragan had been moody again all day and in retrospect, maybe his stabo conscience has been bothering him along as well as his Have-notism, his nomination, his veto win being overshadowed by Rachel's return and resulting in his buddy Matt going up, and his many run-ins with Rachel, particularly the last one on Saturday.. he worked out this evening and seemed either exhausted or introspective afterwards - after seeing him plant the note, I'm guessing the latter

    Prior to that it had been a lot of waiting til Thursday for them and us.. the only notable events I caught were Britney breaking the hammock trying to move it and being told "STOP THAT" by Big Brother when she tried to fix it - they didn't seem to have a problem with Brendon repairing it.. Matt griped some more about Rachel's alleged pretzel note to Brendon and BB allowing it.. he also did some fishing with his Brigade boys and did not get the kind of responses he might have a month ago, and you can bet he noticed that.. he also found out they'd been holding study sessions without him, and he dropped more than a few subtle comments about loyalty

    Kathy, Brendon & Britney also continued to gripe about this or that, and the pool tournament carried on unabated

    They all stayed up past 2am (highly unusual, especially when all said they'd go to bed early).. bubbles came & went.. Kathy took Enzo's hat off his bed for some reason, but missed the note and went to bed.. the guys yacked in the bathroom until almost 4, and Enzo finally found it.. he mentioned it to a sleepy Kathy, then showed his boys - they laughed over it.. Kathy said she'd made the beds and it wasn't there earlier, and she wished she had her fingerprint kit.. then the feeds died

    No sparkly today (Monday)

    They were kept awake overnight with annoying little stabo messages that kept coming along.. I believe there were 14 of them in all, spaced out between 2am and 6am.. the last one said there was no competition today after all

    That made for an extra-lazy day with more naps than usual.. naturally Ragan took himself off the block, and Brendon put up Matt.. Matt told Hayden & Enzo he "knows a special power is out there" but that he doesn't have it, and that he couldn't say if he did.. Matt also hinted to Ragan about it

    Matt's boys seem to realize he's being way too complacent about being nominated next to Lane, but they agreed last night they're ready to cut him loose anyway.. they aren't acting too upset by it all, which Matt will surely notice.. most of the others haven't seemed to notice Matt's easy-breezy attitude, and none of them seem too concerned about what Brendon may have gotten for himself from Pandora other than a field trip and a massage

    Britney & Matt discovered a supply of frozen eggplant parmesan dinners in the pantry, and they dove right in.. rules for the Have-nots have clearly loosened, and none of them questioned that either

    Kathy spread stories about Rachel leaving a message for Brendon in HOH, made with pretzels, spelling out I (heart) YOU plus MATT.. word got back to Matt who complained about rules being broken.. I don't think the message was seen on the feeds so it may or may not have happened.. Brendon, Lane & Enzo swapped stories about early girlfriends and sexual experiences.. later Lane had a "special" shower.. Flashback to 8/17 12:19am F1 if you don't believe me

    CBS will never be able to unravel this clusterfuck

    Daily Ratings - WWMD special edition

    Our long wait is almost over.. ratings are based on What Would Matt Do?

    With any luck, Brendon will go ballistic tomorrow and deliver the drama on live tv Chima promised that made them record the show early instead. In fact, in the interest of full disclosure, I'll freely admit I'm hoping for violence.

    Now that they let them write messages to each other and Have-nots can eat frozen prepared meals, it's just a matter of time until they give them all Internet access and let them prowl the BB sites. Actually that would make for a great week, as no two people can watch the same convo on the feeds and come away with the same interpretation.. imagine the added chaos!

    Julie didn't deviate from her usual script last Thursday. She said the new HOH is 'free from the threat of eviction' so that means Matt cannot put him up. Unless Julie lied. His jealousy about Britney is consuming him lately.. he just can't stand that she has a wealth of life experience at age 22 while he has none at 30.

    Won: $10
    She'd be a safe bet for Matt to put up if he wants to keep up the Brigade Charade that they think he thinks he's still in good with them. But he's not in good with them and they all know it, so she's valuable to him due to her closeness with Ragan, who lives in the pocket of Matt's hoodie.

    Won: 42" 3D TV
    He's one of the likely targets if you're in the Matt's going to turn on Da Boyz camp, and the more likely since he's planning on warning Matt tomorrow that he's voting him out, like he did the other evictees. But for all of Matt's apparent suspicions, we have only his subtle comments to go by that that could happen. It would be the most dramatic use of the sparkly (and wouldn't CBS eat it up?) but if Matt controls the urge for payback and doesn't put them up, he can hold it over their heads for a long time to come.

    Won: 24 18 hours solitary
    See Enzo, with the addition that he hasn't gone back to his stupid Bieber hair since Zingbot 3000 made a reference to it.

    She's the safest use of sparkly as nobody would care or even notice she's gone. It would also be non-dramatic and anticlimactic, which would follow the pattern established thus far in this oh so dull season.

    Won: $1,000
    He's safe from getting a blindside nomination, but is he safe from a blindside eviction? Most assume he is safe but if Matt really wants to stir it up puts up say, Britney, Lane could be shaking hands with Julie tomorrow and sharing tequila with Rachel the next day, brigade or no brigade. On the other hand, would Da Boyz go ahead and shoot in the face if he removed Lane instead of himself? I don't know how to calculate the ratio of shock value to faux loyalty to predict that one.

    Won: $1
    What's he thinking? Only his Diarist knows for sure.

    Won & used: Veto ticket
    As far as I know (and I have looked & asked around a lot), nobody can provide any proof that Ragan as veto winner is exempt from going back on the block again. Most assume he is but that's all it is: assumption. Lucky for us (and him, and BB) he's the least likely Matt would choose to replace himself, so we'll probably never know the ruling.

    Won: $5,000, 24 20 hour revival
    The buxom bombshell role and star of the 1st half thanks to her total lack of self-awareness and her adolescent slurpmance with Brendon. She talked up her game but both her HOHs were wasted on non-threats for purely personal reasons. She was chaos, volatility and mood swings deluxe but rarely boring. She'll be remembered for indecipherable blogs, farewells to 4 of 4 who came between her & her man, tacky outfits & tack-on hair, her dysfunctional showmance, and 'I AM VEGAS!'

    Won: $100, 1 week wig & catsuit
    She was barely there the first couple weeks but she came alive and participated in some juicy spats and was the subject of Andrew's scorching exit speech. She was half a showmance with Hayden and wore a silly wig & catsuit for a week, yet for all this, she still was barely there. She spent most of her time horizontal with Kathy or Hayden, and would only talk with others one-on-one.

    He promised chaos and delivered on that, leaving them and us wondering what he was up to most of the time. He was a good early guess for the staboteur but he WREAKED more HAVOC just by being himself. He was early-to-bed & early-to-rise so I missed a lot of what he did, but he brought some Orthodox education, travel companion/fingerbang stories, and he made lots of threats to make good tv that didn't pan out until his final moments.

    Won: $10,000
    She promised princessy but failed to deliver, opting instead for poor-me tears, complaints about being fat, and a lot of moping around. But she wasn't all doom & gloom: she rode the slip 'n slide and made fun of her keep-warm sleeping layers, and she was Britney's #1 mean girl cohort. She tried out for ANTM and might have fared better there, as they wouldn't have flashed her boobies.

    She turned her nomination into the House of Annie and wheedled everyone for days, to no avail. She promised catfights with Britney and Rachel but nothing came of it, leaving her in the 'Who?' category for future BB trivia, even including her stabotage. She's lucky she went early: she might have cracked bad and the chops would get really brutal.

    Lucky #14 got away before the season began without any secrets exposed or embarrassing incidents to live forever on the web. Her dirty laundry will remain in the hamper, but boobies fans will be forever disappointed and wonder 'what if?'

    Brendon about the note: I took a little handwriting analysis class so there's a good chance I can pinpoint who sent this
    Enzo: Oh yeah? There's a little stain on there too

    Matt: I wish we had HOH so we could play with the ducks and figure this out.. we need the ducks

    Hayden: What if Ragan's the saboteur?

    Matt about sunscreen: Will it permeate a beard? Or when I shave will I have like a white patch on the bottom of my face?
